Excerpt: Very good fixed lens camera with sharp corner to corner sharpness for the entire frame. This camera is the excelent compaignon for your landscapes pictures. The cam produce beautifull colors and an accurate WB. I use this cam in combination with a travelzoom (for ev. zoom pictures).
Summary: I would have never bought this camera at it's original price of $1,200. But when it went on sale for $400, I couldn't resist. I think I should have. I wanted something smaller and lighter than a full size DSLR but something better than my Canon S90.
Excerpt: It seems like the Coolpix A was a spectacular failure for Nikon. Even though it's been discontinued for quite some time, it's still (as of August 2015) easy to find them new, in the silver version at least, for about a third of Nikon's original asking price.
Summary: Excellent point and shoot camera. Initial price offering was way too high for it's class. Takes an excellent photograph. It handles like a DSLR. Well made. . . extremely fast handling. It goes with me just about everywhere I go. . . . bgs.
Summary: A D7000 with a 18mm f2.8 (28mm FX equivalent) stuffed into a point and shoot body, build with metal... awesome!!! This camera is very light and portable. I slap a Nikon SB-300 (perfect match) on it for family functions, so I can bounce the light. Great for local day trips, functions, etc..
Summary: Bought this refurbished for $299 as a backup to my Nikon D800E for travel. Very happy so far. It has been performing well in both in regular conditions and low light (similar results as my Nikon D7000, which I can now leave at home). I find it quite easy to use.
This is my go to camera for snapshots due to its lightness but excellent picture quality

Summary: Been using this as my back up travel camera. This is my go to camera for snapshots due to its lightness but excellent picture quality. I am using an optical viewfinder and tone down the lcd which is nearly turned off.
Summary: First impressions are that I will miss an articulating screen and I am glad I bought one of the optical viewfinders the LCD has been impossible to use in bright sun due to the glare. The color of the jpg conversion and sharp focusing at F2.8 is a winner for such a small camera.
